no gaff dick.
the dark metalic paint andy speaks of is expensive, about $22.00 a spray can.
however, it is an EXACT match. you will not be able to tell your tounge was touched up at all.
they also sell silver and plasticote in a can, for the same price.
in respect to the "regular" silver, any good paint should do. i used the offical airstream dark metalic because i didn't want to waste time trying to run around and find a match. 22 bucks seemed like a good deal because i didn't need to try various paints and redo it multiple times.
there is another route if you have spray equipment at hand, the later trailers have the dupont centari number in the owners manual. (i don't have the number handy at this time) you could have a auto paint shop mix you up some.
but again, by the time you mix the paint, buy reducer, buy filters etc. clean your spray equipment up, you are still most likely money ahead useing the 22 buck a can stuff!
i just look at it as an economy of scale thing.
small touch up jobs=expensive spray can from dealer.
paint the entire bananna wrap and tounge=paint from auto body shop.
you call them ferrets, i call them weasels.
